A HEROIC police officer killed four terrorists single-handedly in a shootout in Cambrils after jihadis rammed a van into pedestrians - just hours after the horror in the heart of Barcelona.
The officer – who local media has said is female – wiped out the jihadis seconds after they rammed their Audi A3 through crowds and into her police car.
As her partner lay wounded in the vehicle, the outnumbered officer faced a one-on-one clash with the crazed gang, who escaped their overturned car and marched towards her armed with machetes, axes and knives.
The Trooper agent, who had been on a routine patrol, acted fast to fire rounds and take out four of the five-strong mob before they caused more bloodshed on the public.
The final suspect attempted to flee on foot before being shot by officers in a nearby park.
The hero police officer acted despite the terrorists wearing suicide vests, which later were found to be fakes.
Officers had been conducting normal checks at a roundabout on the Cambrils seafront when an Audi A3 vehicle came careering down the street, ramming into a group of people before crashing into the police car.
The injured agent, of the regional police force Mossos d'Esquadra, which tranlated into the Troopers, suffered a heavy blow to the head and a broken tibia.
A total of seven people were injured in the Cambrils attack, and earlier this morning it was announced that a female victim has died as a result of her injuries.
The death takes yesterday's death toll to 14 after 13 people were killed when a white Fiat van rammed into crowds of people on Las Ramblas in the heart of Barcelona.
The driver rampaged several hundred metres down Las Ramblas, zig-zagging through crowds in order to kill as many people as possible before crashing the vehicle and fleeing on foot.
